Writer’s Digest 23rd Annual Self Published Books Awards Review of THE THREE MONTH PLAN

“Kimberley Patterson’s THE THREE MONTH PLAN has an eye-catching cover: two hunky guys and a cute girl in between them, and what’s more, the cover isn’t just a come-on, since that image pretty much depicts the content of the book.  It’s difficult to know exactly where THE THREE MONTH PLAN would be shelved: in some ways, it seems like a teen novel, though the characters are a little bit older than standard YA novel protagonists.  The premise of the novel is pretty entertaining, and perhaps owes a little something to film romantic comedies like HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN TEN DAYS.  There are some moments when I feel that this might actually work best as a screenplay, because it’s chatty and breezy and funny.  Perhaps one of the best things about the book is its revolving point of view—we get each character’s perspective on the situation, which makes for some humor and for a little bit of suspense.  On the whole, the plot is pretty predictable, but that is most likely the persistence of the genre rather than any fault of Patterson’s.  I can imagine this book appealing to many teenaged girls, and it is, in some ways, the quintessential beach read—fun, frothy, entertaining.  As such, it succeeds admirably.”

RED ROCK, 2011 – Rachel Hunter, a high spirited teen, is struggling to take care of her ill mother. Her mother’s illness soon forces the family to sell everything and move to a new town seeking a cure they can’t afford. Along the way they stumble onto a fortune, and in financial desperation they decide to keep it. Upon arrival in Red Rock, Rachel quickly settles into their new life, with her mother finally receiving the care she needs from the town doctor. Rachel even finds herself with two suitors, one that she is very likely falling in love with, and one who annoys and irritates her at every turn. Though there is some guilt associated with the secret of their fortune, Rachel is content, until one night someone throws a rock through the Hunter family’s window, threatening to take back what is theirs. Lies, deceit, and betrayal plague Rachel and her entire family as they struggle to keep their secret, and find out who is behind the devious plan. With every secret comes consequences, and Rachel will soon find out that not everything or everyone is what they seem to be.

“Patterson gives all of her characters full life, and love them or hate them, you can’t call them one dimensional. It was interesting watching from Rachel’s POV how they dealt with the guilt of their sudden fortune, and acclimating to life in a new town with two suitors, where she’s never had even one.Lovers of romance, lovers of westerns, lovers of mysteries will all be equally pleased with the storyline presented in Red Rock. I recommend you give this one a try.” Author, Cindy C. Bennett
